Here are the requirements:
1. Write a story in the first person. The “I” must be a character very different from yourself – think age, race, gender, background. I don’t want you to write your own autobiography. I want you to imagine someone with very different experiences from you. There should be a story within a story that gets told in more than one way!
2. Four-six double spaced pages.
3. Resist the desire to wrap up your story with a neat happy ending or a neat tragic ending. Neither of which are very believable. I’m looking for something realistic.
